Teacher Resigns Over Nude Pictures Taken From Her Cellphone

Some South Carolina high school students have started an online petition to bring back a teacher who resigned after a student spread a nude picture of her through text messages and social media.

Thirty-three-year-old Union County High School teacher Leigh Anne Arthur tells news outlets she left her cellphone on her desk Monday as she monitored a hallway during a class change. A 16-year-old boy then took her phone, and with his own phone took pictures of nude images of Arthur on her phone.

A group of students started an online petition in support of Arthur. Wednesday afternoon, the petition had 1,300 signatures.

Superintendent David Eubanks says Arthur was in the wrong because the phone was unlocked. He says he’s unsure if the student will face disciplinary action.

Arthur says she forgives the student, but she believes he should be held responsible for his actions.
